Definition of Wisdom
is the absolute never changing knowledge of God. It existed before anything
else and has remained pure. It grows in a person’s life with faithfulness
leading to spiritual gifts. It opposes foolish behavior and beliefs, and
encourages virtuous living and a close relationship with God. Wisdom and grace
are both “manifold” – having parts that make them complex. Truth and grace combine
to make wisdom. Wisdom is personified as a woman in the Old Testament and is personified
again in the New Testament in the person of Jesus.
When I was a young
Bible student, my grandfather taught me that wisdom is very important. He set
me on a path to explore in the Bible, eventually leading to materials I put
together in a book entitled Wisdom and Beyond. This audio series comes from the
book and I believe it will bless you. – Pastor Lafe Murray.
